Worship at St. Mary’s involves the participation of not only the clergy and the assembled congregation, but also the support, assistance, and coordination of several dedicated groups. These people work behind the scenes to prepare items needed for worship, and they participate in the service itself.
Ushers welcome visitors and congregation members, pass out service leaflets, take up the collection, guide people during communion and clean up after each service. They must be helpful and friendly, with the strength to stand for several hours. Most ushers sign up for a monthly rotation and all are asked to be on hand for major services such as All Saints’, Christmas and Easter.
